A welcoming entrance
Step inside, through the open canopied porch and through the traditional solid wood door. Take a moment to take in your surroundings and the greenery that surrounds this home. The hallway is inviting and sits truly central to this home. Ahead lies the cloakroom - a place to hang up your coat or for when guests need to visit the bathroom.
Let us begin exploring this home by turning left into the spacious open plan living room.
The spacious living area
The light and airy lounge is a spacious open plan living area - perfect for family relaxation. Light and bright, a large picture window perfectly frames the front lawn. French doors to the rear open out to the private lawned garden.
This is such a sociable space. A clear view multi-fuel stove creates a warming ambience to this spacious room. It's large enough to comfortably house two, four-seater sofas. Solid oak engineered flooring flows through this lounge, hallway and into the guest WC.
The fabulous kitchen, snug and conservatory
Step through to the kitchen, sneak a peek beyond the breakfast bar, where a striking glass roof conservatory, with half-height walls, glazed up to the roof, looks out onto the beautiful garden.
Bring your eyes back to the kitchen and admire the tall, contemporary, glossy white units. This is a true chef's kitchen where a Rangemaster cooker sits centrally.
Open the deep pan drawers and feel the soft close of the units. Pull open the fridge drawers - this is a high spec kitchen. Granite work surfaces complete the overall look and extend into a breakfast bar for more casual dining.
At Hatlex Lane, this kitchen becomes the central hub of family life with free-flowing access through to the cosy snug - a place where the children can play, games can be enjoyed or a quiet place to relax and read.
The boot room, utility and garage
Next is the boot room, also a working utility area and a place with ample built-in storage. Set out as a utility room and plumbed for a washing machine, this is the ideal place to keep your walking boots and hang up your dog leads. There is also integral access through to the garage.
The bedrooms and bathroom
Take the staircase that leads up to the first floor. The spacious landing area is so bright, the south-facing picture window to the front floods the hallway with natural light.
Begin by exploring the master suite. How many homes can boast a walk through dressing area? See how the steps illuminate the way as you step down to the bedroom which features a range of his and hers wardrobes. Set just off is the spacious 4-piece ensuite bathroom. Relax in the bath watching the tv that is inset into the wall. If you are an in a rush, choose to take a shower in the large walk-in shower complete with an oversized rain head.
Next, go onto discover 3 more bedrooms. All are well-proportioned bedrooms, each with their own captivating view of the greenery that surrounds this area. The family bathroom features a 4-piece suite. It's fresh and crisp, tiled in simple white.
Step outside and into the gardens. The large lawned garden to the front gives the home superb kerb appeal.
French doors lead out to the rear garden from the main living area, the conservatory and also the boot room. When the spring returns you'll soon be opening these doors, allowing the outside to come in. The large patio allows for alfresco dining, whilst the lush green lawn is ideal for those with children that enjoy playing. This beautiful walled and fenced garden feels private, dotted with mature plants, bushes and trees. This truly is a secure, child-friendly garden.
